      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

I am trying to get a copy of H A Foley's two books, Three Years on Active Service, and The Scrap Book of the 7th Somerset Light Infantry.

 

I have tried Bookfinder etc.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

'Three years' is very rare , if you are wanting to buy a copy . I've only seen about three copies for sale in the last fifteen years . Tom Donovan had two copies

for sale about ten years ago ( I seem to remember they were the author's own copies ) and another came up for sale on e-bay about two years ago. Libraries

may hold copies (  IWM ? ) but otherwise you just have to keep looking at the usual sites like Amazon , Abe and e-bay and be lucky !

Should you find a copy  of The Scrapbook of the 7th battalion check that the supplement by Brig Gen. Preston White entitled 'Cambrai' which came as a separate booklet with the main title is present. The 'Three Years on active service' book is in a curious Library style green binding I have seen several copies of this and all were bound the same .

Good Luck
